Daily Pivots: (S1) 1.0084; (P) 1.0107; (R1) 1.0141; More…..
USD/CHF’s rise resumed after brief consolidation and took out 1.0145 resistance. The pair reaches as high as 1.0164 so far. Intraday bias is back on the upside. Rebound form 0.9860 should target a test on 1.0342 key resistance next. As noted before, based on neutral medium term outlook, we’d be cautious on topping at around 1.0342. On the downside, break of 1.0008, however, will indicate completion of the rebound from 0.9860. And intraday bias will be turned back to the downside for 0.9860.
In the bigger picture, prior rejection from 1.0327 resistance argues that USD/CHF is staying in a medium term sideway pattern. In any case, decisive break of 1.0342 resistance is needed to confirm underlying strength. Otherwise, we’ll stay neutral in the pair first. In case of another fall, we’d expect strong support from 0.9443/9548 support zone. Meanwhile firm break of 1.0342 will target 38.2% retracement of 1.8305 to 0.7065 at 1.1359.
